. state government is here. we are doing what we need to dofment we are coordinating with fema. i want to thank the administrator for being here, for the input he's already had in helping to make our operation betterment we'll move on from here. what i said yesterday i really mean. there's got to be sorrow. you see that in -- and the president has seen that today, in the eyes and faces of the folks he met. that sorrow is appropriate. we suffered some loss. luckily we haven't suffered that much loss of life and we thank god for that. but we have suffered losses, and this is the worst storm i have seen in my lifetime in the state. but we cannot permit that sorrow to replace the resilience i know all new jerseyans have. so we will get up and we'll get this thing rebuilt and we'll put things back together because that's what this state is all about and always has been all about. for all of you who are here, i met a bunch of you today, who disregarded my admonition, get the hell out of here, you know, you are forgiven this time. you are forgiven this time but not for much longer. we got to
the storm even hit so they were able to get here relatively quick. the national guard was here. fema was here. they were all working with the local authorities and were able to do it pretty smoothly. they've stopped search and rescue efforts for tonight and say they've gotten all of the elderly and handicapped people out of the area. they will do it if there are emergency situations. they're not entirely sure how many are left in the houses. we did speak with some who said they were going to stay regardless, they didn't feel like it was much of a threat. the high tide, though comes in at midnight tonight and they are concerned about getting another four feet of water. right now it's receding a lot since we've been here for the past few hours the entire day mostly. we can show you what it looks like here and this is certainly what it looks like. you can hear the sounds of the activity here and the generators and sirens every once in a while but wove a hard time conveying is what it smells like. there's a lot of gasoline, a lot of sewage. you don't want to imagine, rachel. what's in al
bloomberg predicting more bodies will be found. and president obama fema headquarters this morning, holding a conference call with the governors of new york, new jersey, and connecticut. and it's that '70s show in the garden state all over again. new jersey governor chris christie ordering odd-even rationing to ease the incredibly long lines. and odd numbers on the license plates, odd days and even numbers on the plates, in some 12 counties and governor mitt romney wrapping up an event in new hampshire and governor gin cal travelling with him. we'll talk to him in a few moments. back to staten island and the storm after the storm. those escaping death now pleading with city officials for food, water, and any help they can get. to anna kooiman on staten island now, anna? >> all right, well, good morning to you, neil. yeah, you mentioned over 169 deaths at least caused by hurricane sandy and 22 of those right here on staten island at least. and as police are saying, those numbers could be going up, as they continue to uncover debris and potentially find more bodies. we're about 300 yards from
the effects. hundreds of thousands are now under evacuation orders. fema predicts damage costs of about $3 billion just for wind damage alone. heavy rains or snow, storm surges, widespread flooding across the region depending upon where you live. we're also following a drama unfolding out to sea. a rescue is under way for the crew of the hms bounty, the ship built for the hollywood movie "mutiny on bounty." unbelievable. we'll have more on that es cue in just a minute. let's begin with the first reports of power outages. they're already rolling in. see meteorologist rob marciano is in the iconic new jersey town of asbury park. high, ro hi, rob. can you hear me? >> reporter: i hear you carol. you're right about that. this is a special place. the heyday of the '20s this boardwalk would be bustling. convention center you've seen behind me as gone through a number of boom and bust cycles and resuhr jenr and resuhr jeesurge jenss. the water is over the pylons, the pout -- relentless surf has been pounding this beach. right now we're almost at about high tide. you can see the foam coming up righ
for fema loan. these loans are typically a very low interest rate around 4% interest rate loans that help these consumers rebuild their properties. not a prerequisite for taking loans is in the future, they have to purchase their flood insurance policy so this doesn't happen again. >> host: so you represent mortgage brokers. >> guest: insurance agents and brokers. >> host: has your group estimated yet the cost to them? >> guest: we have not yet. this storm is such a colossal nature that it's going to take a while to get our arms around the total cost. the estimates i've seen soap are but the damage is anywhere from 5 billion to 20 billion. i've seen some estimates as high as 20 billion in damages. now i think that's even premature because we've been in contact with fema and day right now, and i think correctly, they are focused 100% on recovering and disaster assistance, helping people on the ground. they haven't even begun to put pen to paper and holy calculator out and start adding up the cost. and so, these estimates would be 5 billion to 20 billion are kind of from 30,000-foot level,
, the mayor and the sheriffs and the police, fema is not here yet, they have to still put their stuff out there, this say local people helping local people. >> so, anderson, we'll keep an eye on this, seaside heights, new jersey, and toms river, new jersey, which i know michael holmes is there. he's talking to police there and they say least 100 people or so need rescuing as well. >> brooke, chad, we'll continue to check in with you. we'll talk to the mayor of asbury parks to see what kind of damage was there. we'll talk to him and see what daylight has brought. we'll be right back. you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list at's a few names longer. you see us bank on busier highways. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits,
been all over. fema has been fantastic. and responsive and working these types of situations. i have total respect for the job that fema is doing. i want to thank them very much as well as the army corps of engineers. as you all know, one of the major problems still is the water in the tunnels, the water has receded, so when you drive around, it looks like most of the water is gone, but the water filled the subway tunnels in many places, fill the brooklyn battery tunnel, and when the water fills the tunnels, that means con-edison has issues. much of con-ed's equipment was in the tunnels, so getting the water out of the tunnels probably the main -- one of the main orders of business right now. first a transportation update. as you know, the new york city buses are at full service today. thank you, mr. joe and your extraordinary team. there will be limited commuter rail service on metro north and on the long island railroad which will begin 2:00 p.m. today. okay? limited commuter rail service on metro north and limited new york city subway service subpoena meanted by a business bridge

, the federal government through fema and the fema funds. third, state funds and state programs that are available. we had a conversation with the president last night. once again, he was asking how he could help, how the federal government could help and what came out of that conversation is we will be the blowing 30 joint teams in the region. between the state and the federal government through fema. these teams will have an expert in each area. an expert with private insurance, and expert with fema, and an expert with the state who knows the state housing programs these joint teams will be deployed in the 30 key areas in the region and fema will be providing the 30 personnel for those teams. we think the president for that. it is another step in a full agenda of federal assistance to our region. we thank them for that. those 30 teams will start to be assembled next week. they will be dispatched to the affected communities speaker governor andrew cuomo of new york. a couple things he pointed out. 90% of the island, which is really such a huge number when you think about it, th
new jersey in surveying the damage. that is where government works, fema, a program governor romney called for eliminating during the republican debate -- guest: not all, absolutely false. -- governor romney said that -- he talked about not funding in -- guest: governor romney said that, talk about not funding it. only government has the opportunity to provide those services certainly in an emergency like this. fema has to respond immediately. you saw the first responders -- police, fire, the municipal services that have to respond so quickly and so well. our hearts and thoughts go out to those affected communities and the president is responding quickly. he will get back on to the campaign trail on saturday in the commonwealth. let's go back to a lot of what barbour had to say in her presentation. went for barack obama was because they were responding to the bush presidency. during the bush presidency he took eight surplus from a year 2000 with -- took a surplus from the year 2000 and turned it into deficit by imposing the bush tax including millionaires. what governor romney is pr
jersey before the storm even hit. they were able to get here quick. national guard was here, fema was here. they were all working with local authorities and able to do it smoothly. they stopped search and rescue efforts for tonight. they have gotten all of the elderly and handicap out of the area. they will do it if there are emergency situations. they are not sure how many people are left in the the houses. we spoke to some people who said they were going to stay regardless. they didn't feel like it was much of a threat. the high tide though comes in at midnight tonight and they are concerned about getting another four feet of water. it's receded a lot. we can show you what it looks like here. you can hear the sounds of the activity here and the generators and the sirens every once in awhile. we have a hard time conveying what it smells like. there's a lot of gasoline, a lot of sewage. you don't want to imagine what's in all this water right now. >> everybody needs to take that high tide seriously as we know that's one of the things leaders are saying is to think this is necessar
, it allows the people to authorize people to move into hotels or whatever is necessary. >> how is fema doing? >> that's one of the complaints, it's been the slow responsover all. tread cross just got here yesterday. i was working on getting them here for three days. fema just got here yesterday, but they really won't be on the ground until today. >> they've been at the shelters, though, as well. >> they just started yesterday. a few representatives with some basic information. but they will be on the ground today. >> okay. so we're having a meeting with them later today to lay out going door to door. >> and the mayor, how is he doing? we have the marathon coming up. you were fairly critical of that yesterday in your comments. what's your thoughts? >> listen, overall, i understand and i really do respect. the mayor has a tremendously difficult job and overall -- and he's done a pretty good job handling this. i do, though, i really disagree with the call for the marathon. i think it's wrong. and a big part of it is a couple reasons. first and foremost, just yesterday we're pulling bodies out o
management agency, fema, has already deployed teams and pre-staged resources to potentially affected states and fema is in close contact with states up and down the east coast, to make sure there are no unmet needs. one concern for both campaigns is that the storm could hinder early voting in ohio, north carolina and virginia. one democratic senator said this about the impact on the president's campaign. >> the storm will throw havoc into the race. i was supposed to be with the president special president clinton on monday. that rally has been cancelled. but i think that virginia is ready to go to the polls and i think the president will carry virginia. >> reporter: due to the upcoming storm, governor romney cancelled evens in virginia. instead, he will link up with his vice-presidential runningmate in ohio and the two of them will campaign in that key state. one romney supporter, former house speaker newt gingrich had sharp words for the president over his campaigning scheduling choices over the consulate in libbia, compared to today. >> you notice, he is canceling his treps over the hurri
of the jersey shore saying 2,000 fema personnel are on the gloupd rou affected states. at least 74 people have died in the u.s. as a result of sandy. most of them from new york and new jersey. still 5.6 million customers in the dark. and it may be ten days before the hardest hit areas sea power restored. more than 19,000 flights were canceled because of sandy, but stranded passengers have something to be thankful for. newark and jfk airports were back in business yesterday and delta and american airlines are scheduled to resume a limited number of flights out of laguardia in about 30 minutes. the mta is also getting back to business with new york city subways offering limited service starting today. the m tcta is waiving all fees until tomorrow. so good news there. >> we're looking for any good news so thank you. the eye of hurricane sandy has hit the jersey shore hard. it wiped away entire economies. president obama surveyed the damage with chris christie yesterday. this morning kayla tausche is in toms river, seaside heights. what's it look like there? >> reporter: it's very dark here. we're
. sir, even though before the storm's full force had hit had, you had appealed to fema to send crews equipped to remove downed trees, try to help restore power lines as quickly as possible. how is fema responding? >> i visited with fema yet at the federal staging area. i will say initially i was somewhat concerned because there were some forest service assets on the ground. they obviously were involved in a search and rescue mission. that's critically important. as the search and rescue mission begins to wind down, i had emphasized the need for the forest service to get on the streets. you cannot drive anywhere on long island or virtually anywhere on long island without having to detour because there is a tree blocking the way and a tree that has brought power lines down with it. so i'd asked fema to ratchet up their response to help with the removal of downed trees. about an hour later, i must say, i received word from fema that they had asked the national forest service to not only deploy assets but deploy additional assets. there are about 40 forest service personnel on long islan
in touch with fema and other homeland security official. what more can they do for you? >> secretary napolitano, she called me when i was at a home, believe it the no a 9/11 mother who lost two sons, her home was devastated. and janet call made at time, she spoke to the mother. fema's implanted in the police emergency command center. we have fema right there doing outstanding job. right now, helping us go door-to-door to locate people that might be missing, trying to locate more fuel to come in and then also, setting up a location in suffolk county, nassau county, community college, a school in lindenhurst where people can go, it's an all-purpose center run by fema and the counties, which will provide emergency assistance, whether it's housing, whether it's aid to rebuild homes. right now the main thing is restore people's power because colder weather's coming. you have many people or senior citizens who are either living -- lost their homes or living in homes absolutely no power whatsoever. and that's having an impact, impact on gasoline. there's believe it or not, it's hard to find
barack obama's leadership style. and there were some references to fema and exactly the role of the federal government in emergencies. but i just think this quantifies -- i think it changes the race in the sense that it changes the tone of the last few days. and i do think that the president has managed whether it's just us inside the beltway that like the symbolism of barack obama and chris christie and chris christie's endorsement. actually the takeaway for people around the country who are all watching this closely. when i've spoken to people in texas, i've spoken to people in california, they're all focused on this story. seeing the president in the role of president does have an impact on some undecided voters, i think. i think that there was that leadership role which he managed to fulfill, and he fulfilled it well. >> it's just an awkward situation for the romney campaign. since sandy made landfall earlier this week, we mentioned fema. mitt romney has been facing questions about his plans for funding fema and disaster response. something he suggested turning back to th

a conference call with fema. they have about $3.6 billion left in their disaster contingency fund. that's as of october 26th. they're also saying that president obama when he made that major disaster declaration for new jersey and for new york, he did that verbally. what that meant was they were able to cut through a lot of the red tape and move this process along and get the response going even before the disaster happened. they're also saying that fema is dispatching housing inspectors to go out and take a look at the claims. they want to avoid any kind of massive fraud problems. they say they've been able to bring that down over the past couple years. they'd like to continue to do that. they're going to have boots on the ground verifying some of these housing disaster claims in person. so a lot of response here from the federal government across the board. so far, the folks at fema telling us they think they have enough money to do the job. >> all right. thanks so much, eamon javers. >> and from government losses to trading losses. we know we won't be getting a check from fema, so wh
